Visual Basic 6 to .NET
Wizard Code has experience in migrating existing VB6 apps to .NET. A VB6 desktop app can be migrated to a .NET desktop or web app. The underlying data store can be migrated to a cloud-based database.
Migrating legacy systems may be required for the following reasons:
- Maintainability of code base – maintaining legacy systems can prove expensive.
- Skill set of developers is primarily .NET.
- System scalability.
Tools exist on the market for automatic conversion of code. However, these tools are only a start and can prove expensive. The output may contain numerous build issues and there is also the consideration of upgrading VB6 controls which are not present in .NET. As VB6 and .NET are different platforms it requires manual conversion to achieve a working software product on the new platform with functional parity.
